Specifically, we’ll explain how an organization can achieve digital transformation using Google Cloud’s technology through the following categories: modernizing its IT infrastructure, upgrading the way in which its teams develop applications that run a business, how it can leverage machine learning and artificial intelligence to build new value, how using cloud-based productivity tools like GSuite are essential to the way work gets done, and understand the cost management opportunities and challenges that come with a changing cloud-based IT infrastructure.

Throughout the course, we’ll explain core concepts such as compute, applications, security, APIs, databases, and their roles in digital transformation. You’ll also learn about specific examples where different cloud technology has been used and the benefits they’ve created for individuals and companies globally. More importantly, we’ll equip you with the knowledge you’ll need to either lead or influence digital transformation projects, collaborating with the right stakeholders.
